What is the winter version of summer’s “Get the Scoop” ice cream promotion. Try “Get the Soup!” Our friends in Dining and the University Union are promising a big bowl of Chili or Chicken Noodle for $2 a bowl next Wednesday, Jan. 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Phoenix Club.
Tom and Cathy Harden were the hosts and guests of honor at an employee ice cream social Wednesday to mark Tom’s final week as UW-Green Bay chancellor. The sun was warm but not hot, and the ice cream was appropriately cool and melty. See photos.
The UW-Green Bay community bade farewell to Tom and Cathy Harden July 30, enjoying a special Get the Scoop event on Harden’s penultimate day as chancellor.
Lines were long as students, faculty and staff waited for a sweet treat and a chance to say thank you and goodbye. Harden announced late last year that he would be stepping down as chancellor this summer, although he and Cathy plan to stay in the Green Bay area.
On Wednesday, Harden posted the following message on his Facebook page:
“Tomorrow is my last day as Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. It has been an honor to serve the students, faculty, staff, alumni and community over the years. My thanks to those who have worked so diligently to advance the critical role of public higher education. Now more than ever, our state and nation need strong public universities, like UWGB. As Chancellor Emeritus, I will continue to support and defend the purpose and mission responsibilities of our outstanding institution. Cathy and I are grateful for your friendship and support.”
UW-Green Bay’s sixth chancellor, Gary Miller, begins his new role Aug. 1.
